: Hi,
:       The problem is that something is added or removed to the mail after it
: is signed. By "mail" I mean the full mail (with headers). Some headers
: are not contained in the signature (like the "delivered to" headers)
: because it is normal to be added after the signature but others (like
: subject or a footnote in message body advertising a service (common in
: free email services)) should not be changed after the signature.
: 
: Common email clients SHOULD NOT create such problems. Homemade on the
: other hand...

Christos and everyone else,

        Changing all three settings to the same number did the trick.  Thanks for yer
help.

Herman
Live Long and Prosper
